The London Contemporary Art Prize aims to reveal and promote artists who have yet to establish a profile on the contemporary London art scene. The Prize is aimed at artists working in one or more of the following media: drawing, printing, painting, photography, digital art, sculpture and video.
The entry fee is £20 for up to five artworks.
The first prize is a £1000.00 and 12 months representation with LCA gallery.
An exhibition of the 20 finalists will be held in 2018.
The judges will be looking for artists who demonstrate the very best in creative process and promotes craftsmanship and technique.
All works will be judged anonymously and there will be no segregation by country, genre or style, etc.
